Green energy groups are going to need to get their safe spaces ready after they read this report.
Democrats and liberals have been fighting like crazy to block Senator Joe Manchin's (D-W.V.) Mountain Valley Pipeline project.
Other than the Democrats in his own state, virtually nobody on the left is supporting this project, even though Biden promised Manchin he would get this approved if he folded on reconciliation.
The project has been tied up in court, finally making its way to the Supreme Court, where it was given the green light, reported the New York Times.
Get the Safe Spaces Ready
Early Thursday, the court sent out an unsigned order that trashed the lower court ruling that had blocked the pipeline from proceeding.
Mind you, the majority of the 303-mile project has been completed, with only a small portion on the West Virginia border needing to be completed for this to become operational.
The DOJ defended the project, stating, "Whatever benefit respondents or the court of appeals might believe would be gained by having the agencies again reconsider the challenged actions, Congress has determined that further reconsideration is unwarranted and has prioritized MVP's 'timely' completion over interests addressed by any other federal statutes.
"That judgment is for Congress alone," reported Fox News.
GOP Chief Deputy Whip Guy Reschenthaler (R-PA) celebrated the win, stating, "The Fourth Circuit judges are not supreme rulers and lawful orders issued by the legislative and executive branches must be followed.
"Congress was well within its power to restart the Mountain Valley Pipeline construction and usher in a new era of energy independence for the region.
"Instead of halting the pipeline, I urge the Supreme Court to plug up the ludicrous activism seeping out of the lower court so American families can enjoy lower energy costs, substantial land royalties, and most importantly — law and order in America."
Manchin was also very happy to finally have this matter put to rest, stating, "The Supreme Court has spoken and this decision to let construction of the Mountain Valley Pipeline move forward again is the correct one. I am relieved that the highest court in the land has upheld the law Congress passed and the President signed."
The timing could not have been better for Manchin, who has been struggling for approval as of late, but I am sure the $250 million on royalties to West Virginia landowners will help.
